One of the largest endowed gifts ever received by Fitchburg State University will create the Global Ambassadors Scholarship Program, opening doors for students to travel abroad for experiential learning opportunities.
Through the leadership of Anna M. Clementi and the Clementi Family Charitable Trust, $1 million has been raised to support the new scholarship program.
When fully implemented, the fund is designed to boost the number of students in our faculty-led international programs by 30 percent over its first six years.
When fully implemented, the Global Ambassadors Scholarship Program will cover 50 percent of the costs for students to attend Fitchburg State’s faculty-led international trips. Students will apply for the scholarship with the endorsement of faculty, and will be limited to sophomore, junior and senior class students and will target recruiting first-generation students and students with no previous international travel experience.
Students from all majors and programs will be eligible.
Students should apply for the Global Ambassador Scholarship through Academic Works. Applications open in October.
